Thursday Photo Caption Contest–February 9

"Sock it to me LBJ"

Who knew that the “LB” in LBJ stood for “light bulb”? Apparently, quite a few of you! We were buzzing with excitement after reading your captions, and we needed to ground ourselves.

So we turned to our guest judge, Liza Talbot, who is an archivist at the Johnson Presidential Library and the mastermind behind the LBJ Timemachine. (Don’t miss today’s post of wartime footage shot by LBJ himself!)

Congratulations to  Steve—Liza thought your caption was electrifying! Check your email for a code to get a 15% discount in our eStore.

So why was the future President looking so concerned? Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson was working to get public power to the people in the Texas countryside. This photo of Mrs. Mattie Malone and LBJ was taken by a photographer for the Austin American-Statesman in May 1941 during LBJ’s campaign for Senate.

Today’s photograph features a couple and a couple of lobsters. Get cracking and put your funniest caption in the comments below!

"Your caption here!"

    ABC’s ratings took nearly two decades to recover from the debut of “Steve and Marcy’s Lobster Dinner Hour.” It ranked as the Depression Era’s least favorite program, as voted by listeners.

    Miriam was ever so happy that Wanamakers had had a sale on lobster protection head gear. She had just come from her weekly wash and set when Jim told her they were going to out for lobster.
